General Notes (Husband)
As a boy, Hugh enjoyed riding, hunting, fishing, and swimming. He also learned the farming methods of the time from his father and older brothers.
General Notes (Wife)
Rosa, or Rosie as she was called, spent her early days near Goshen and had fond memories of attending the Goshen Christian church with her family. She inherited a great strength of character and strong sense of family from her parents. She was always first to lend a helping hand when needed and had many friends. One long-time friend (Esther Shroyer, also a relative through the Williams family) remembered her as a girl with long, dark braids who loved to accompany her father on his sales trips around the country. She often spoke of her father more than her mother, and of the day she was with him when he died. The other girls in the family seemed to gravitate towards their mother, but Rosie favored her father.
Hugh and Rosie began their married life in a two-room house with a loft on 20 acres they purchased adjacent to Hugh's parents farm. To prepare fields for planting "hay beans," alfalfa, and corn, they took turns guiding a single-bottom walking plow pulled by one or two horses. The hay beans, for-runners of soybeans, and corn were bundled into shocks and fed to the livestock. Hugh and Rosie also milked and sold eggs and cream in Pleasanton, Iowa. Their beast work horses were named Dick and Prince. Prince was feistier than Dick, and only Hugh could ride him.
